Wonderful device, ticks all the boxes but the remote stopped working after a while.

Firstly the sound - fantastic. Well balanced between treble and bass, being neither too much of either end of the spectrum. The brand is well known for having good quality sound, and it fell in line with my expectations. Coming to this from Skullcandy which seemed to lean more towards the bass side of things, going to this was a bit more 'lighter' in the sound which wasn't totally unexpected.
I was searching everywhere for earphones with a full remote (not just volume but forward / skip / pause), this did the deal nicely and worked with my iPhone just fine. It's nice having all that control as you go along without having to look at the screen. Safer too, if walking.
The build quality came up with an issue. The remote stopped working completely after about 4/5 months of usage. Not particularly heavy usage or obvious damage / strain on the device. Just stopped, hence the 3 stars. Despite that, I appreciated the thinness of the cables and the join where the two converge into one. It feels professional and strong, as well as considered about the subtleness of the cables.
Other reviews have suggested changing the ear-pads so they fit the ears snuggly as it helps really get all the sound quality these buds provide. I sized up, but it caused some strain in the ear after a while. Doing so helped with the sound quality, but switched back to the default for comfort sake.
